Star Gaze at the Summer Night Sky

The summer season is the perfect time to head outdoors with the children at night and stare at the stars above. The grass often provides a cool relief from the scorching temperatures, and on a clear night you can stay out in the backyard for hours and look at all of the tiny dots in the sky. Stargazing is a fun and interactive family activity, and even gives you a chance to teach your children a bit about astronomy and basic science.

And this summer, if you want to be able to take a closer look at all of the stars in the sky, turn to Imagine Toys® today. We now offer a fun new telescope science kit for kids that will let them gaze into the distance, and learn all about what is up there above.

Learning About the Wonders Above

Many children enjoy using telescopes and love staring at the stars above. But if your child truly enjoys basic astronomy and stargazing at the night sky, consider having them pursue this interest further by enrolling them in science clubs or science camps outside of school. Often local universities or municipal governments will host science exploration and discovery camps for kids during the summer months, which may include week long sessions learning about the stars, the planets, and other basic wonders of astronomy.

Additionally, if your child is already in school, then there may be other science-related activities or organizations available to them inside or outside of the classroom. Speak to their teacher when school starts again in the fall to find out if there are any further opportunities available to your little ones.
